"Light and easy to download free anti virus."

September 15, 2011  |  By Sonpi_Vaiphei

 |  Version: Rising Antivirus Free Edition 23.00

Pros

Light, easy to download and install and allows custom settings

Cons

None that i'm aware of so far

Summary

Far better than the other free anti-viruses available out there. Avast won't update, Avira has cnaged for the worse, and AVG, Norton etc are way too heavy. This one is easy on precious system resource and detects virus pretty well.

"For People who Cant Install!!"

April 15, 2011  |  By CarbonViper666

 |  Version: Rising Antivirus Free Edition 23.00

Pros

its a good free antivirus

Cons

updating sucks

Summary

if you cannot install Rising then its because Cnet.com has not properly uploaded it go to there actuall website to download it
www.freerav.com

>> i know this because after downloading it off cnet.com the file size was 4.4Mb but afterdownloading it off their official website its now 89.0Mb see the difference meaning that it may not of uploaded all the files needed to install

www.freerav.com/ or go to google and type Rising av click on the first link

"Will not install."

March 17, 2011  |  By badger1010

 |  Version: Rising Antivirus Free Edition 23.00

Pros

Unable to comment.

Cons

Unable to comment.

Summary

Impossible to rate the software at all as the installer immediately disappears before the installation can take place. Not an inspiring start.

"Best set of features I've seen in a free AV"

February 21, 2011  |  By TheBigGoodWolf

 |  Version: Rising Antivirus Free Edition 23.00

Pros

VERY sensitive, has a startup scan option (choose entire disk(s), System directory, or services and drivers, depending on how much spare time you have).

Cons

Startup scan (when enabled) requires a "press any key" to run, otherwise it is skipped.

Summary

I've been using RAV on a rotating basis on systems from XP thru 7 (sorry, all 32 bit, haven't tested on any 64 bit) since early 2008 and have always been happy with it. It is the only free antivirus I've used with a TRULY USEFUL, QUICK startup scan. The key press requirement is not a problem with a PS/2 keyboard, but not every BIOS supports a USB keyboard throughout the startup process, leaving them unable to use this great feature, hence listing that as a con.

 |  Version: Rising Antivirus Free Edition 23.00

Pros

None to write about as it would not install.

Cons

Obvious one - did not install lol

Summary

Reading thru the rating this seems to be a common complaint. Avoid until it is fixed.

"Doesn't works"

January 17, 2011  |  By tapanb

 |  Version: Rising Antivirus Free Edition 23.00

Pros

No pros in this one!

Cons

The setup starts and vanishes. Nothing happens. It does'nt even installs. Not recommended at all. I had Kaspersky installed and thought as this is small in size it would be faster etc. but it does'nt works.
